  • Overview

    The Biergarten, a pop-up beer garden, will open in Water Works Park on September 1 and be serving up German-style beers and craft beers Thursdays through Sundays until the end of October. Along with beers, they will have food and activities for the whole family.

    Get a flavor of Bavaria in Des Moines! Since the 19th century, beer gardens have been a staple of Munich. Traditionally, steins of beer have been enjoyed on picnic tables shaded by trees. We wanted to bring that German experience to Des Moines and have partnered with Water Works Park for a pop-up experience this fall. We'll offer local and German brews, German-inspired eats like hotdogs and pretzels, live music and yard games.

    Every Thursday to Sunday in September and October, you can find us east of the Lauridsen Amphitheater under the tree canopy in Water Works Park. We're just off the bike trail and there's plenty of parking to the south. Restrooms and a natural playscape for kids are also nearby.
